Transitioning Delivery of A coordinated set of activities that targets resources to achieve a specific health goal or goals and is typically time-limited. Interventions to the Primary Health Care System: Achieving a Strategic Balance of Independent and Integrated Delivery of Interventions
Public health campaigns are part of the primary health care (PHC) system, yet An immediate output of inputs placed into a health system, such as health workforce, procurement, supplies and finances. of campaign interventions is commonly conducted independently to address targeted health goals. Independent delivery of campaign-based health interventions is often moved to delivery via the PHC system in countries entering middle-income status, witnessing shifts in donor funding, experiencing positive changes in the epidemiological trends (e.g., reaching disease elimination targets), and/or aiming for universal health A proportion (%) that reflects the number of people receiving (an) intervention(s) divided by the total number of people eligible to receive the intervention(s).
Campaigns can integrate service delivery partially and incrementally with the PHC system to reach a strategic balance of interventions delivered via the PHC system and independent campaigns. Where possible, developing an integration readiness framework is critical to transition delivery of some or all campaign-based services into PHC systems. It is important to assess experiences and opportunities, entry points, and drivers of integrating delivery of campaign interventions with the PHC system. It is also important to assess the processes, best practices, health outcomes, and (i) The total, direct and indirect, effects of a programme, service or institution on a health status and overall health and socio‐economic development. (ii) Positive or negative of integrated delivery of campaign interventions with the PHC system.
This brief introduces the concept of transitioning independent delivery of donor and/or government funded campaign interventions to integrated delivery through the PHC system, contributes to discussions among countries, donors, implementing partners, and other stakeholders about the benefits and tradeoffs of integrating delivery of campaign interventions with PHC, summarizes the lessons learned from experiences and highlights the evidence gaps.
